In it's today's issue "MOTORSPORT aktuell" reports that the "Zakspeed-Racing-GmbH" is changing from Mercedes to Opel. Beside the teams Joest and Rosberg Zakspeed will be the third Opel-Works-Team with 2 Calibra for the next season. The contract will be signed this week. Drivers were not announced yet, but a rumor isn't missing here: the rumor is called Nigel Mansell. Possibly one of the former Zakspeed-Mercedes drivers Kurt Thiim or Alexander Grau will be taken over.

There was no statement from AMG-Mercedes about who will fill the gap which Zakspeed is leaving.
